Morocco Trekking

We offer a range of Morocco trekking holidays, mostly on Mount Toubkal and in the Mgoun area. In winter the peaks are blanketed in snow but in summer there are endless opportunities for trekking through the Berber villages and getting an insight into the culture of this north African country. From camping trips to luxury holidays staying in five star mountain lodges, the trips can be suited to your dates and needs. 

Additionally your holiday can include a visit to the desert for some camel riding or quad riding, or a visit to famous waterfalls or mosques, all of which are close by the main mountain tourism centre of Imlil. Indeed there is also a skiing resort nearby which has a good selection of runs and an excellent infrastructure. Added to that lovely food, renowned hospitality and the exotic atmosphere of a souk on a late night in Marrakech, and Morocco really has a lot to offer. It is safe and the trekking is marvellous, and the country is well set up for adventure tourism.

 

 

Trekking in Morocco is not too arduous, the routes are never too long and the enjoyment of a refreshing glass of mint tea at the end of the day is a welcome finish to a hike in the Atlas Mountains. The terrain is mountainous but not precipitous, paths that are used by local people and routes over passes that have been around for millennia. The hiking scene in Morocco is very popular and there is a definite exotic flavour to the experience. In the summer it is very hot in the cities and in the mountains it is important to be careful of the sun, and cover up. The local mountain people are well used to the desert like conditions and they have adapted well to the climate but for a first time visitor trekking in Morocco needs to be treated with caution. 

However there is great hospitality to be enjoyed and also plenty of luxury. We work with the world famous Kasbah du Toubkal if you want a five star experience in one of the best small hotels in the world, and there you can enjoy a hammam to wash away the dust of the day, fantastic Moroccan food and amazing views of the peaks. Further up in the mountains we can also offer a luxury mountain lodge with underfloor heating and its own hammam and comfortable beds. 

The Mgoun area is less visited but no less beautiful for its surrounding panorama, a classic Atlas peak and a great trekking challenge that can be completed in a day from the base camp. We can provide the trekking elements of your holiday, but we can also take you to the desert to see some of the famous desert cities and go camel riding if you wish, or to the coast where sea sports and activities await. Morocco really does have a wealth of tourist adventure activities.
